I just found this and I know I'm a year late, but better late than never.
Original quote by DownandDirty:
I spent some time reading through the series of 32 "experiments" this person went through recently and I must say it's both exciting, encouraging and sad........all at the same time to read through them.
Although I understand his point of view, I don't agree completely with his strategy and mindset about it (for example I think an educated stock buy or well planned business investment is alot less risk). Takes an equal amount of guts, determination and foolishness to have gone through it.
To risk amounts of $300 (up to $700+) per day..wow. Although I occasionaly spend $50 on a days betting, I try to stay in the $20 range max.
Some random thoughts:
1) How exactly is the "Power Number" determined? Thats obviously a term from a system (maybe Gail Howards?) Is Power number the same as a "key" number. I assume so.
2) Although he claims he came out ahead in the end..you can see he failed many times by Wheeling and counting on a 20ish number set to come out. The $3,000 plus win must have been alot of fun to have happen. You can go back and forth on this endlessly.
3) how much confidence can you have in a system when you feel you need to buy 300+ tickets to administrate it?
I think he risked way too much money on what amounts to a random game of chance. I still admire him somewhat. You just gotta love optomistic types who beleive in themselves. He is one of the folks here I would be happy to collude with to form a low risk experimental plan. I hope his efforts produce a happy ending. I just think he should direct his drive, motivation and faith in other areas in addition to game. I noticed very few of you commented/replied while this was going on.
I could go on and on but any comments?
For one thing, I spent $3,000 and won roughly $13,000. That's a big profit. Second, I didn't play alone. I had a group playing. Third, I didn't play every game. That's why it was called an experiment. Fortune favors the bold, my friend. Remember that.
